Cupcake Sundays


I am amazed that cupcakes are all the rage. Cakes have had to move over as the cupcake takes center stage for formal occasions such as weddings and celebrations. I decided to try for myself to decorate cupcakes with a theme, Cupcake Sundays.

Once the cupcake has cooled dip it into the candy-quik chocolate.
Place in the refrigerator until hardened.

Candy-quik chocolate is ready made and sold at Walmart. It covers 30 cupcakes.

Pink frosting:

4 oz butter
13 oz powdered sugar
1 T milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. almond extract
2 drops food color
chopped nuts (optional)

To the softened butter add milk and half of the sugar. Once completely mixed add the remaining sugar, vanilla and almond extract. Put in refrigerator for a few minutes until slightly hardened then put into a decorating bag with tip 199. Start on outside of  circle with a continual squeezing motion make second ring for height. Spoon chocolate on half of the pink frosting then add the cherry. Add the chopped nuts. Cool again in the refrigerator until ready to serve (pink frosting will soften with room temperature).

I will be taking these to work for a potluck. My kids are asking if any are for them?
Yes, of course. I made some for our dessert, too.

I had so much fun making these Sundays with you, today.
Thank you for stopping by. 
Blessings,
